|I am so sorry. |
I too have been through this. Even my Father took it bad when I had to let
go of my charming little shar pei. He was 15.
He was my little man. My little knight in shining armour. My Mom use to say
that if he was a man I would be married. He protected me - he loved me fiercely
and I him.
I have his pictures all through my home and I have his ashes here too.
Im so sorry. I know how hard it is but it really is the final act of complete
and unconditional love to let him go.
I wish you peace.
|Thank you so much|

|I feel for you. My baby had gotten me through some of the |
most difficult times in my life.
I would just curl up to him on the floor and sleep hugging him just to feel
I so wish some days he was here to do that for this past year I could have
really used his tender kisses on my cheek and his sighing.
It will be okay - He is letting Beau near him to let him know its okay to
let go - like he is letting you know. I know that when we are in turmoil and
there is an animal in our life - it just seems so much easier to know that the
love you cant find humanly you can find from them. It makes us feel so
You are a great Mommy and he knows this. He wants you to be a great Mommy
and be strong-which you are. You will see him again. Heaven knows no time
so he will just think you are out doing your thing until you get there.

|I am so sorry - I have been there. I have said goodbye to five cats and three dogs. I try to look at it this way: Animals do not fear death the way we do. They do not philosophise over whether or not there is an afterlife. They only know that they are in pain. We are the ones who are suffering, because we will miss them. We are focused on ourselves - not on what's best for them, but on our own feelings. We need to separate ourselves from our feelings and do the right thing by them. Then, I think the best thing to do is to adopt another animal from a shelter. Give another homeless cat a home and a chance at life.|
|Thank you so much|

|I`ve had dals since 1974 and I now have a fifth one Molly. My last one passed 3years ago. I had to put 3 of them down and I never ever got over that. Now that I have Molly I am going to do it again sometime down the road. She will be a year old next weekend and I hope I live long enough to at least ensure she is taken care of. |
I know that pain of loss when you lose a pet, especially when they are all you have.
